Yep! TBH, I just keep pushing it back in. It's not my car, so it would probably be different if I had to drive it every day!

It is permanent, but can be disolved/removed with thinners.

Cheers Paul!

Why do today what you can put off until tomorrow...

Wanna see what I drive? No pics of the latest Passat, but you can see the Scenic II here and the CB1000R here!

Previous Passat here and Bandit here.

Where the seal lifts the most, is really where the sealant is needed to secure it in place.

Pull the seal out to its 'normal' raised position, apply a bit of Tiger Seal onto something suitable (a wooden lolly stick is perfect), then pass the end of the stick with the TS on it, under the windscreen seal at the highest point.

You may want to spread it around, depending on how much of the seal is raised. Then push back into the 'proper' position.

If you have applied a bit too much, you will get some seepage around the seals, this can be removed by gently wiping with a cloth soaked in thinners (no smoking whilst doing this!).

If you can clamp or weigh down the section you have bonded overnight, then all to the better.

If you don't have such facilities, you can put a towel over the pillar, and secure it via the door, this should add sufficient pressure to hold it in place until it sets.

Hope that helps,

My dad called me this morning about this problem on his Scenic II.

Cheers Paul I was able to advise him on what to get, to fix it

Not a problem Pat - it should be fairly straightforward.

Tiger Seal is great stuff, I've used it so many times...


This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.

Great guys, sounds like it's a common problem that renault don't care too much for - when I bought the car it had this problem and (by the looks of it) they just pushed it back in - great eh - I can do that(!).

So, looks like I'll just look at gluing it in then - thanks for all the replies

In the end, my Dad decided to call a local mobile windscreen fitter rather than do it himself.

He turned up, pulled a tube of Tiger Seal out of his van, and did the job for a tenner
